Thursday Prompt #31 Love

December 2, 2010

      L o v e

They say, Eskimos have over a hundred different definitions for snow. We have only three designations for Love: Divine, Fraternal, and Erotic. This prompt is about different people and ways that we love them. We are not asking for names, but rather qualities, behaviors, and the things these people do for you that make you Love them. In essence we are looking for a wider based definition of Love. Is it a certain type of humor that draws you, an attitude or way of seeing things? Do you find yourself moving closer to the quirkiness of one individual and away from another’s rigidity? Are you often drawn to others because they remind you of people in your past, a certain time period, or a sense or feelings about life experiences? What do you love in another writer’s words that you don’t find elsewhere? What do you love and how do you define that experience? And, of course, that may lead you to write about the feelings and sense of hate and its different definitions. Whatever occurs, write it into a poem.

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!

    Thank you for this prompt. It made me think of so many things. I couldn’t write about all the different kinds of love. Here is only one piece.
